Districtwide Update: Rumor
Posted 9/17/19


In an effort to be as transparent as possible, we wanted to update you on a rumor that was circulating on social media. We received several reports of a rumored threat related to Dougherty Valley High School (DVHS). The San Ramon Police had an increased presence on the DVHS campus this morning while they investigated the rumor. San Ramon Police have not identified a credible threat towards the school. Please know that while the rumor involved a threat of gun violence, the investigation found no evidence of a threat related to gun violence. We want to thank our students who came forward to report information both through the anonymous tipline and to school staff.


The safety of our staff and students remains our highest priority. Every SRVUSD school has an anonymous tipline on the website homepage. We take all tips reported through the tipline seriously and investigate them thoroughly. We are thankful to the students and community members who use the tipline to report important information that could affect the safety of our schools. Promoting a Districtwide culture of  “if you see something or know something, say something” helps to keep everyone safe and informed. 


If you have any questions, please email Thank you for your support of our schools.
